Penn State to take on Washington in Fiesta Bowl

It was the first win for Penn State at Iowa City since 2001 and the Nittany Lions' first road victory in a conference opener since 2010-11. Iowa would respond cutting the lead to just five by the half as Penn State cooled and struggled with foul trouble on the defensive end of the court.

The University of Washington Huskies are heading to the Fiesta Bowl.

The University of Washington football team will make its 38th bowl game appearance December 30, when the Huskies take on Penn State in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz.

This will be UW's first trip to the Fiesta Bowl. He was the Big Ten offensive player of the year.




Penn State: Seventh appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, 48th bowl appearance in school history.

The Huskies have earned a bowl berth for an eighth consecutive season. Penn State lost by one point to Ohio State and 3 pts to Michigan State. "We can't wait to see our Penn State family descend on Valley of the Sun to passionately support their Nittany Lions!"

Both teams finished the regular season with a 10-2 record. However, this is Penn State's first appearance in the Fiesta Bowl since the 1996 season when the Nittany Lions topped Texas, 38-15, on January 1, 1997.

Penn State's 1982 national title was also preceded by a 26-10 win over USC in the Fiesta Bowl to close out the 1981 season.
